Something most won't say is retirement ain't easy on some level. For 20 years I was NAVY. I was a sailor. It didn't matter where I was, I was a sailor. And a part of me still is. I can still spot military across the room. But when something is a part of you and you a part of it for that long, it takes a while to get it out of your system.
Retirement is something you need to plan and prepare for 5 years out. I left with no plan. For what ever reason, I thought 20 years in the Navy would make it a bit easier to find a job. Boy was I wrong!!
Having said all that, I am so glad I finished the 20.
